"It was only four tracks on the machine, but I was picking up twenty from the extraterrestrial squad."

- Lee "Scratch" Perry

100dBs is a producer and DJ living in Brooklyn. He's released two albums with MC Ryan-O'Neil and a slew of mixes delving deep into hip hop, reggae and soul. His signature DJ style blends performance and selection: astral echo pedal on a wild crate-digger's chase through the genealogy of a tune.

He came up listening to Kraftwerk and Giorgio Moroder, thanks to the bootleg cassettes his mother managed to bring with her from Cold War Romania. An adolescent encounter with a Lee Perry record flipped his whole world and led to formative dub experiments on an old four-track. He got his start spinning hip hop nights on the Lower East Side and has toured the world since. He's rocked parties for burners, breakers, Berlin artists and Brooklyn's reggae revivalists. Reviews of his work have appeared in Rolling Stone, Okayplayer, Stereogum and Urb.
